Islands Fine Burgers and Drinks
Islands Fine Burgers and Drinks
Its not just the amazing burgers they serve, but also the tall frozen mugs of Blue Moon. Totally satisfied everytime I come to eat here. The only set back is they cook the burgers to medium and I am a Medium Rare person. However the toppings are top of the line and my favorites are the Bleunami and the Hula.

Zippy's Restaurants

Zippy's Restaurants
When I first got to Hawaii I was asked if I had ever been to a Zippy's and with my NO response I was immediately taken to it. My first order was Korean Chicken Plate and to this day is my favorite thing to eat there. I pretty much enjoy almost everything I have eaten at Zippy's and when Hawaiians have been gone for a long period of time, Zippy's is the first stop.
